Wooo Hooo! Just got back from our public hearing, and our Conditional Use Permit has been approved!!! I feel like a giant weight has been lifted off my chest, and I can finally breathe a big sigh of relief. So that’s what I’m doing right now… Oh, and enjoying a celebratory drink or three!
So, what does this all mean? Well, basically this approval means that the City of Los Angeles will allow us to operate a beer-tavern, with an attached microbrewery at this location. In other words, we are allowed to commercially brew beer in our building, and to sell that beer to the public for both on-site and off-site consumption.
Now don’t get too excited just yet…We still have to get our approvals from the Health Department and Building & Safety, and we still need our state and federal licences before we can legally sell beer. BUT – getting approval from the City of LA was probably the biggest hurdle we had to overcome, and now we’ve done it!
However, because we were already able to start the application process for all of the things I just mentioned, things are going to start happening very quickly now. Be sure to stay tuned!!!!!
